Fire has gutted a camp of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Jere local government area of Borno state.
Two children died in the fire incident in the unofficial Khurso Bashir refugee camp located close to Maiduguri, the state capital.
400 families lost their homes before the fire was contained.
Some inhabitants of the refugee camps are from Marte and Mafa area,while others are migrants from smaller villages and the state capital.
Survivors of the misfortune have blamed the incident on one of their fellow IDPs who was said to have been roasting groundnuts when the fierce wind blew embers from the fire she lit to the thatched shelters.
